Sunday Science Tidbit; Hurricane Spaghetti Plots

In this week’s Sunday Science Tidbit, we’re going to talk about hurricane spaghetti plots. Hurricane spaghetti plots help us visualize where a storm may go in the future based on many different model members that range in structure and complexity. The two basic types are statistical and dynamical models.   Statistical models are the quickest and simplest of the models. They rely on the location of the storm, time of year, and the behavior of past historical storms. Dynamical models, or numerical models, are quite complex because they use big math equations to calculate the atmosphere and need…
